I Just Realized Lizzo's VMA Performance Paid Homage To Prince, And Now I Can't Stop Watching It
The "Juice" singer worked with Prince before his death.
It goes without saying that Lizzo absolutely tore the house down at the 2019 VMAs.
But you probably didn't realize that her epic performance paid homage to Prince in many ways, did ya?
As several eagle-eyed Twitter users pointed out, the cloud bodysuits Lizzo's backup dancers donned were replicas of the cloud suit Prince famously wore for his "Raspberry Beret" music video.
Lizzo's background dancers also wore assless pants very similar to the iconic outfit Prince wore during his sultry VMA performance of "Gett Off" in 1991.
Here's Prince showing the girls how it's done:
Others noted the afro wigs the dancers sported, which was a hairstyle Prince frequently wore throughout this career.
If you're wondering why Lizzo might've chosen to honor the legendary musician, you should know that the singer once collaborated with Prince on his 2014 album Plectrumelectrum.
Now excuse me while I rewatch her VMAs performance for the 1,458th time now that I realize it (possibly) features the coolest tribute ever.
